How the #Oct73 war Anniversary is ruined for me in #2013 ?

Next Sunday Egypt will be celebrating the 40th anniversary of the 1973 war aka Yom Kippur war , supposedly it should a day of remembrance for the heroic actions and sacrifices of those men who fought this important war.
Unfortunately despite it is a huge event , it is overshadowed by the on going war between the Muslim brotherhood from one side and the military from another side where the people are stuck between the two parties.
The Muslim brotherhood and its allies are heading to the street in order to end the military coup and bring back Morsi as well to restore the army’s dignity along legitimacy to the end of that talk.
The Pro-military supporters and parties as well groups are heading to the street allegedly to celebrate the days but actually they are going to the streets to stand against the Muslim brotherhood supporters who dared and start to enter Tahrir square. 
Bunch of NDPians groups and campaign urging El Sisi to run as a president already announced that they are going to the streets on that day in order to fight the Muslim brotherhood and to convince the general to run for the upcoming presidential elections.
The day is ruined !! I wish everybody stays at his home and uses God’s gift to the humans aka reason for once instead of that group thinking epidemic.
In a nutshell all those going to the street on Sunday care less for the anniversary of the war or the men who died , they do not even comprehend the lessons we should have learned from the war. All those going to the streets on Sunday only care for their the leaders’ political agendas on both sides.
Personally I have always loved the October 1973 anniversary more than any other national day. I always look back how my friends find it strange that I used to celebrate it by reading and watching all the material available about that war and how I used to have this ritual of listening Abdel Halim Hafez’s patriotic songs. Ironically some of those friends now are flying over the moon with the love of General El Sisi and the army now. For me this war was more than something military and geopolitics as well we are speaking about defiance , real defiance of those men who fought despite all the odds and challenges.
Sadly this year I am worried more about what will happen on that day and whether more Egyptians will be killed on the hands of other Egyptians in a useless fight over power.
Amazingly the October 1973 anniversary this year turned in to a gold an opportunity for hypocrites all over the country to do what they are good at and worship Abdel Fatah El Sisi who was only a teenager when the war broke. In fact I am expecting that some of those hypocrites to speak about the heroism actions of El Sisi in the war despite he joined the military academy in 1977.
Do not be surprised last anniversary in 2012 a magazine owned by the ministry of oil an ad congratulated President Morsi for the part he played in the war !!

    The war resulted in a disastrous alliance with the United States and peace with Israel that you've never forgiven Americans or Israelis for. What lesson exactly do you think Egyptians should have learned from it? Egyptians have been pissing all over what that war earned for Egypt for at least 20 years and probably longer. It hardly seems like a display of respect for the sacrifices of the people who fought in it that Egyptians have been working so hard for so long to make it all for nothing. Y'all should reinstall a military dictator, openly declare the US and Israel to be enemies, and get back in bed with the Russians. Do all that and you'll be right back where you were before the war, except with a vastly more sectarian and ignorant population now than you had then, and a lot more global hostility coming your way.

    All those going to the streets on Sunday only care for their the leaders’ political agendas on both sides.

    Seems like a pretty good thing for them to be caring about, right now. Would you prefer they didn't?

  2. A war is a war. People die for no reason but serve as fodder for the power greedy machinery. A war should not be forgotten but a war should never be celebrated.
